Blog Support

In assessing a number of modules colleagues and I ask students to produce a piece of work that can be hosted on a professional website. This could be a short written essay, a video of them leading a practical or maybe a video clip of a presentation with a voiceover.

In doing this we hope to challenge the students in producing work that will be of use beyond the constraints of academia and over the course of their undergraduate studies we hope to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to have a professional online presence as they progress in their careers.

On this page I've collated examples of online professional practice that I think are worth reviewing. This is intended as a means of inspiration and support for the emerging professionals we work with so that they may better get to grips with the technology, and potential content for their developing online presence.
